25 Wherefore all men must take upon them the  name which is given of the Father, for in that name  shall they be called at the last day:
26 Wherefore if they know not the name by which  they are called, they cannot have place in the king dom of my Father.
27 And now behold, there are others which are  called to declare my gospel, both unto Gentile and  unto Jew: Yea, even unto twelve:
28 And the twelve shall be my disciples, and they  shall take upon them my name:
29 And the twelve are they which shall desire to  take upon them my name, with full purpose of  heart:
30 And if they desire to take upon them my name,  with full purpose of heart, they are called to go into  all the world to preach my gospel unto every crea ture:
31 And they are they which are ordained of me to  baptize in my name, according to that which is writ ten; and you have that which is written before you:
32 Wherefore you must perform it according to  the words which are written.
33 And now I speak unto the twelve:
34 Behold my grace is sufficient for you: You  must walk uprightly before me and sin not.
35 And behold you are they which are ordained  of me to ordain priests and teachers to declare my  gospel, according to the power of the Holy Ghost  which is in you, and according to the callings and  gifts of God unto men:
36 And I Jesus Christ, your Lord and your God,  have spoken it.
37 These words are not of men, nor of man, bu  of me: [p. 37]
